We are well underway into football season and every Friday brings us to peter B. Kyne field for the game of the week. I usually shoot the sophomore game and the occasional youth football game on the weekends. The trick to shooting football is to shoot with as long a focal length lens as you can, get as close to the action as you can and shoot with as wide-open aperture as you can. The trick is to isolate the action against a pleasingly out of focus background. When the action is just right and your timing is good the picture tells the story of the gridiron battles.
